The Corners on Main is a new condo development in the heart of old Ottawa East, located at 166 Main Street. The development of the project has been contracted to Domicile Developments. Roderick Lahey and John Doran are the lead architects of the buildings. The 3.5 acre site was purchased by Doran from the Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in 2014 with the promise of preserving their convent. The two six story buildings consists of 140 customizable units and retail space on the ground floor. Sales of the condos have already begun with prices ranging from $150,500 to 594,500.
The Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus were sent to Ottawa in 1902 from France to provide scholastic and domestic services to the oblate Fathers. By 1910 the Sisters had established their own convent on Oblate Avenue. The convent is well known for their vegetable garden on the northwest portion of the property near Main St. The convent will remain beside The Corners on Main for the remaining sisters to live out the rest of their days.
